The Development and Meaning of Eddington's Fundamental Theory

£24.99

Product description

This book serves to make available unpublished writings of Eddington's from 1940 to 1944, which have survived and are of scientific importance, as well as elucidating the argument of his posthumous book Fundamental Theory. Eddington is probably best known for his observations of the solar eclipse of 29th May 1919, that provided one of the earliest confirmations of Einstein's Theory of General Relativity. Used hardback in very good condition with d/j in good condition. The book has bumping at the top of the spine and to the bottom corners of the boards. The front board has a mark from top to bottom. Internally, the book is clean with sound binding. There is a small Foyles sticker on the front paste down and a discrete owner's signature and date in ink on the ffe. The d/j has wear to the top and bottom, particularly on the spine and corners. There is some grubbiness to the spine. The upper corner of the d/j is clipped, but the price is intact.
